Along with growing older and hopefully wiser, come those dreaded grey strands, fine lines and wrinkles. The mere thought is enough to put a frown on anyone’s face. It’s hard not to worry when we’re bombarded by environmental factors like pollution, strong UV rays, and free radicals that damage healthy cells and increase the rate of aging. To delay aging, start by taking good care of your health and your skin by eating well. Incorporate more antioxidants in your daily diet with simple things, like drinking green tea, consuming more fruits and vegetables like broccoli, tomatoes, and blueberries.
Anti-Aging Tip #1: Never leave home without sunblock
While that glowing sun-kissed look may be fashionably in for now, prolonged exposure to the sun damages your skin in the long run.
Excess exposure to sunlight and harmful UV rays is one of the main causes of aging skin, and studies have shown that UV rays are responsible for up to 80% of skin problems. Interestingly, sunlight is not the only source of UV – white fluorescent lights and halogen spotlights can also emit substantial amount of these damaging rays. For fairer and more youthful skin, make sun protection part of your beauty regimen today!
Anti-Aging Tip #2: Plump up the moisture
‘As we age, skin loses moisture and elasticity, leading to dull and listless skin. As our skin becomes drier, it is more susceptible to wrinkles forming. For supple, radiant skin, applying a good moisturizer is just the beginning. You need to pump in water and collagen to boost healthy skin structure. Collagen is present in 70% of our skin, without it, our skin sags and loses elasticity. UV, stress and malnutrition all lead to a further decline in collagen production and skin quality.
Anti-Aging Tip #3: Get grooving
Besides keeping you lean’ and fit, regular exercise is also an effective and all-natural way to alleviate stress. Did you know 75 to 90% of visits to the doctor are due to stress-related ailments? Managing your stress level and DE-stressing regularly helps keep nastiest like accelerated aging, uneven pigmentation and acne outbreaks at bay. If you’re constantly feeling too tired to exercise, it’s time to top up your Co-enzyme Q10 levels!
